Welcome to SR and to the 24 Hour thread! Congrats on choosing a better way of life. In addition to checking in here regularly, I highly suggest joining and actively participating in the Class of August 2015 thread found on the Newcomers to Recovery forum. It's a great way to learn from and help others who are also in early sobriety. Wishing you the best today and remember you don't have to take that first drink today no matter what.

Congratulations today to the awesome Upwardspiral on 1 major month of sobriety. May it be the beginning of many more months to come! Congratulations to the wonderful Amp123 on 4 spectacular months of sobriety as well as to me on a healthy delivery of 9 months of sobriety!

Today we are covering the Aye-Aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) which is another endangered species of lemur in Madagascar. This species is thought to be a symbol of bad luck/evil and is many times killed on site. An interesting fact about this species is that it uses a unique method for obtaining food, known as percussive foraging. With progressive foraging, the aye-aye taps on trees to find grubs. It then gnaws holes in the wood using its forward slanting incisors to create a small hole. It then inserts its narrow middle finger into the hole to pull the grubs out.


A picture of an aye-aye (and no we aren't on a ship matey! lol...)

I always look forward to seeing each and every one of you here! I hope to see you all here again tomorrow! Hopefully, Forgivemeall and Altoids can bring us muffins tomorrow!
